"Himmatwala" had blockbuster written all over it at least on first poster. Ajay declared that he is original "Himmatwala" literally and Sajid said that it would his biggest hit. But film fell flat on face embarrassingly.
Film collected only 10.50 cr nett on Sunday which was drop of 13% from Friday. Film collected 12.10 cr nett on Friday followed by 8.50 cr nett on Saturday. Film collected only 31.10 cr nett over the weekend.
Film will finish week one at 42-45 cr nett max and that is complete disaster. Film might finish with 55-60 cr nett lifetime collections. Even SRK starrer "Ra.One" faced similar bad reviews but it crossed 115 cr nett riding on star power and same was with "Talaash" which crossed 90 cr nett despite having niche appeal.
Film is a huge set back for Ajay Devgn who delivered similar disaster "Tezz" last year and it has been proven that without Rohit Shetty or packaging he can be a good actor but not a star. Film will go down as loss making proposition for distributors, UTV and Vashu Bhagnani.
Below are the collections for the film -
